QUOTE: It seems scammers have a bit of thing for spoofing BBC websites at the moment. Yesterday it was work from home scams, and last month it was a Facebook wheeze which (in a nutshell) went like this: “Lady Gaga is dead and here’s a BBC video to prove it, also click here.”  Maybe the (unrelated) work from home fakeout has inspired scammers into a fresh round of BBC shenanigans, because the phony BBC video rides again on Facebook. As usual, it’s surveytacular and is geared around fake Facebook messages promoting the completely fake BBC page
